IAEA: U.S. Report on Iran 'Outrageous'

IAEA: U.S. Report on Iran 'Outrageous' - OhmyNews International
"An official at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has called an intelligence report put out by a U.S. congressional committee 'outrageous and dishonest,' filled with 'erroneous, misleading and unsubstantiated statements.'

Vilmos Cserveny, IAEA director for External Relations and Policy Coordination, made his comments in a letter to U.S. House Representative Peter Hoekstra, who chaired the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence which on Aug. 23 issued the 29-page document assessing Iran nuclear activities: ' 'Recognizing Iran as a Strategic Threat: An Intelligence Challenge for the United States.'"
Good to see someone calling bullshit on this thing. Basically the Republicans looked at the intel on Iran, said "Wait a second, this doesn't support our stance at all. You guys (i.e. the CIA) suck."

Also, and for the record. One of the big Neocon lies is that "everyone thought Iraq had weapons." They keep repeating this bullshit. The U.N. (i.e. the people on the ground looking for them said Irad didn't have them. That's at least one of 'us', hence 'everybody' didn't think Iraq had weapons before the invasion.

I know that somehwat tangential to a story about a response to a report on Iran's WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION!!! , but I wanted to clear the air on this one.
